Definitions get so diluted, deluded and reluded. As I was taught a decade or more ago, and I still hold as the definition I go by:

script languages are compiled on the fly. you can program in scripting languages, but you must include the compilation time of the script + the loading of the interpreter to be significant. thus you have mod_perl and fastcgi. the compilation is cached but as an addon facility. php has something or the other like that.

java is kinda in that land, where the jvm loading is the only significant part.

where as c has no vm beyond the kernel and it's os facilities.

Title:
Use:  <p> text here (a paragraph) </p>
and:  <code> code here </code>
to format your post; it's "PerlMonks-approved HTML":



  • Are you posting in the right place? Check out Where do I post X? to know for sure.
  • Posts may use any of the Perl Monks Approved HTML tags. Currently these include the following:
    <code> <a> <b> <big> <blockquote> <br /> <dd> <dl> <dt> <em> <font> <h1> <h2> <h3> <h4> <h5> <h6> <hr /> <i> <li> <nbsp> <ol> <p> <small> <strike> <strong> <sub> <sup> <table> <td> <th> <tr> <tt> <u> <ul>
  • Snippets of code should be wrapped in <code> tags not <pre> tags. In fact, <pre> tags should generally be avoided. If they must be used, extreme care should be taken to ensure that their contents do not have long lines (<70 chars), in order to prevent horizontal scrolling (and possible janitor intervention).
  • Want more info? How to link or How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
